New England Kurn Hattin Homes serves at-risk boys and girls from families throughout the Northeast who are affected by tragedy and social or economic hardship. Kurn Hattin is a charitable, year-round residential school with more than 100 years of service to children in need and their families.
Approximately ninety percent of the children, ages six through fifteen, are placed at Kurn Hattin by their families who, for whatever reason, are unable to keep their children at home.
Students live in cottages with nine or ten others in their age group and one houseparent. Each cottage provides a comfortable family-style atmosphere with two or three children in a bedroom. Houseparents help provide the structure and support that each child needs to succeed.
Kurn Hattin's state-approved school for grades one through eight provides a challenging academic environment.
Admission is available year-round and is based on a child's potential to benefit from a structured and supportive residential and educational program. Thanks to the generous financial support of Kurn Hattin's donors, admission does not depend on a family's ability to pay.
Anyone may call to request an application. Applications continue to be accepted throughout the year. The application process helps us determine whether our program can meet a child's needs. If you know of a child or family who might like to explore the option of attending Kurn Hattin, please contact the Admissions Office by phone (802-721-6932) or by Email.
